December 16th-23rd, 2013

Hey guys,

the 26th is good for me at 1230 mexico veracruz time. i don`t know what time utah.

this week was awesome because i recieved the surprise news that cindy and arturo and their baby jacobo were going to get sealed on friday. presidente treviño called to tell me and give me permission to go. it was pretty cool cause i got to be the acompañante of arturo for the endowment and also we were witnesses in the sealing and got to sign the certificate and everything. it was one of the best experiences of my mission. i felt really good being with them in the celestial room, it`s  a great family. i really didn`t know what to say, overall i just felt really motivated to do it again, to help another family achieve that. i know i only have four weeks left but i am not going to stop being a missionary when i get home.

it was also a good week cause we helped jorge get baptized. he was really happy and the baptismal service was nice. that`s another great family. i also took an oral spanish test this week via internet in the offices, it was kinda hard but i got "advanced" i`m not sure if thats the top level or not but i`m happy with it.

i`m excited for this week because it`s christmas, we are going to take advantage of the chance to teach people about the birth, ministry, and mission of christ and try to teach a lot of lessosn and find news. on the 24th and 25th. it`s gonna be good.

i got the christmas package mom!! thanks so much we enjoyed it all!! i am so lucky to have such a good family that remembers me at christmas time even if i am far away. i`m sorry that i can`t send you guys gifts this year but just know that i love you all and will be thinking and praying about you oft.

love elder broadhead
